With a generous grant from the Krieger Fund, the Baltimore Homa Community was able to offer a second year of their Children’s Summer Farm Program at Ancient Oaks Homa Farm in Westminster, Maryland. Eight groups–over 300 children–came to enjoy a half-day of hiking, drumming, dancing, yoga, sound healing, storytelling, tasty vegetarian lunches and quiet meditation with Homa fire, not to mention lots and lots of free time to just run and play without fear of traffic, violence or bullets.
Scientific experiments also show that Agnihotra and Agnihotra Ash purify water. We are advised to add Agnihotra Ash to our drinking water, and many of us are doing so regularly. Why is that recommended? The reason is: Agnihotra Ash removes pathogenic bacteria from water. This has been tested a number of times. One impressive experiment was done by Dr. John Matlander of Cuenca, Ecuador.
We are so delighted with this news! Agnihotra is helping children with AIDS.
Dr. Ulrich Berk, President of the German Association of Homa Therapy, introduced Agnihotra at the Amma Mane center of Ananta Bharatha, a nonprofit organization in Mysore (South India) which is helping HIV positive children, most of whom are orphans.
Spring is here at Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya and we are looking for volunteers for spring & summer seasons.
We are a Homa Organic farm and a one-of-a-kind international Ecovillage, located in the beautiful mountain region of southern Poland.
We are an all-vegetarian, eclectic group of artists, teachers, musicians, writers, therapists, gardeners and herbalists.
The atmosphere at our Ecovillage is infused with healing vibrations. Here we do Agnihotra at sunrise and sunset, 5 hours Tryambakam Yajnya daily, 24-Hour Yajnya on Full Moon and New Moon.
For the past ten years, a small group of dedicated people from various countries has held the vision of Shree Vasant Paranjpe of completing a series of seven Maha Somayags on the banks of the Narmada River in Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh, India, for the healing of our
planet. February 12th, 2017 marked the successful completion of the Aptoryam, the seventh and final Somayag in this series.
In March this year Lee and Ana Ringma took to the road to share the
graceful healing and blessed relief that Agnihotra and Homa Therapy
brings into people’s lives. We drove up the NSW coast starting from Om
Shree Dham in the Hunter Valley NSW, giving Agnihotra workshops all the
way up to Brisbane QLD across to Toowoomba and then down the New
England Highway. Highlights were well-attended workshops in Wingam, Byron
Bay area, Toowoomba and Armidale.
Three of our Ecovillage Bhrugu Aranya residents delivered talks to the many scientists, researchers and students at the III International Conference on Yoga and Ayurveda at the Sulislaw Palace in Poland, June 24-26. Attendees were from Germany, USA, India, Holland and Poland.
Children, children, children, and young people! From the time the Baltimore Homa Community began to envision our Homa farm, we could always see children there playing, singing, dancing, drumming, hiking, bringing their happy, excited energy and blessing us with just their presence. Well, after two and a half years, our Ancient Oaks Homa Farm in Westminster, Maryland was able to welcome almost 300 children and youthful counselors from the heart of Baltimore city… from five different summer programs, on five separate field trips.
Bali is a place where much of the ancient ways are still honored and practiced, yet much has also been forgotten, and the westernization of the culture seems to be gaining momentum among the youth here. As Smart Phones and the internet are having a major impact on the culture, the ancient knowledge of the Vedas has also returned and today we are blissfully witnessing a resurgence of interest in Agnihotra by locals and foreign visitors who come to Bali to partake of the beauty and reconnect with nature.
Bhrugu Aranya is a blossoming International Ecovillage in the foothills of the majestic Tatra Mountains in southern Poland. Over the years, numerous people have visited our centre and had life-changing transformational experiences. Here, visitors and guests can receive healing, learn about spiritual ecology, connect with Nature and experience conscious community living.
Now has come the time for major expansion in order to accommodate the many who wish to come here.
